 Hi Anon,


Welcome to EmpowHER. Here are some of the treatments used for Uterine Prolapsed, but it also depends on how severe is her symptoms. Simple self-care measures, such as performing exercises called Kegels to strengthen your pelvic muscles, may provide symptom relief. Maintaining a healthy weight and avoiding heavy lifting may help reduce pressure on supportive pelvic structures.


For more-severe cases of uterine prolapse, treatment options include:

Vaginal pessary. This device fits inside your vagina and holds your uterus in place. Used as temporary or permanent treatment, vaginal pessaries come in many shapes and sizes, so your doctor will measure and fit you for the proper device. You'll also learn how to insert, remove and clean the pessary. You may be able to take the pessary out overnight and reinsert it each day.  if you feel concerned about the doctors decision,  it might be good to get a second opinion from another specialist.
